With the glistening waters of Lake Como as your backdrop, lush gardens, stunning ballrooms Villa Pliniana is probably one of the most luxurious wedding venue in Italy and there is no mystery as to why Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek chose it for his wedding which was officiated by Chris Rock and counted Bruno Mars among its performers.
